Prototype Year/Era:1940
Road Name:Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR)
Product Type:Metal Kit
Finishunpainted
Prototype Dimensions:40'
These kits consisted of a wooden framework (for the floor, two roof strips, end blocks, and spacer blocks), over which the pre-painted/lettered stamped metal sides (not numbered), ends, roof, and roof walk were to be applied. The outside bracing is very shallow, and has rivet impressions beside them. This does not represent a composite wood car. The underframe has the minimum of detail parts applied. The model in the photo still has the HO-scale Kadee ramp-operated couplers from before they invented the magnetically-operated ones. It has, however, been upgraded with American Models sprung Bettendorf type of trucks.

The car with Creco doors was as they were originally built over a period of ten years from 1924 to 1934. They had an 8.5-foot interior height, and came with KD brakes and Carmer cut levers. A total of 18,000 of those were built, in five different road number series. Starting in 1932 the cars were being equipped with AB brakes, which was completed on almost all cars by the late 1940s to early 1950s. Note that some cars with the Creco doors remained in service until the 1960s. Other railroads used this same car design, so Des Plaines Hobbies has decals available for those as well.
